Here’s another piece of the Eastern Specialty DSP but a completely different colorway. This one is pairing Fresh Fig with the Tranquil Tide instead of Lemon Lime Twist. It’s a fairly lively print which gave me a few issues as I tried to pair it with the new Eastern Medallions Thinlits dies, but everything I tried came out too busy. So this one just has a simple banner.
The card base is very vanilla (another reason to love the Eastern Specialty DSP) with a deep border of Fresh Fig before a piece of the pretty DSP. I then took a piece of very vanilla scrap and stamped the sentiment from Endless Birthday Wishes (it’s going away, but guaranteed to be available until next Monday) in Fresh Fig. I think this may be the most used sentiment that I have in my collection! I had trimmed the scrap to be just under an inch wide so that it would easily slide into the triple banner punch. I cut a piece of fresh fig just over an inch wide and cut one end of the banner with the triple banner punch. At this point, I realised that I’d have to be really careful to accurately use the punch for the other end so I glued the two pieces together and used scissors to cut the flag in the fresh fig. It’s not as simple, but it’s safer! I popped this up with dimensionals.
